Phylogeny and quantitative traits of carnivora

Description

This data set describes the phylogeny of 70 carnivora as reported by Diniz-Filho and Torres (2002). It also gives the geographic range size and body size corresponding to these 70 species.

Usage

Format

carni70 is a list containing the 2 following objects:

tre

is a character string giving the phylogenetic tree in Newick format. Branch lengths are expressed as divergence times (millions of years)

tab

is a data frame with 70 species and two traits: size (body size (kg)) ; range (geographic range size (km)).
